Red Dead Online release date narrowed down

It took the original Red Dead Redemption 8 years to sell 15 million copies.

Today on Highlight Reel we have Red Dead Redemption 2 knife games, falling cowpokes, ancient bear gladiators, flying salarymen, and much more!

Take-Two Interactive revealed this week it'd be opening the public beta for Red Dead Online, the multiplayer component of its unbelievably popular Red Dead Redemption 2, sometime later this month. "Take-Two delivered better-than-expected operating results, including growth in net bookings, during the fiscal second quarter", Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said. Of course, this has been helped in no small part by the game's re-release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in November of 2014, and the continued support that Rockstar has lavished upon GTA Online.

The most infamous have been from YouTuber Shirrako, who posted such charmingly named videos as "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Beating up annoying feminist" and "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Deporting A Mexican".

"Using the gameplay of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 as a foundation, Red Dead Online will be ready to be explored alone or with friends, and will also feature constant updates and adjustments to grow and evolve this experience for all players", the announcement states.

"We look forward to working with our wonderful and dedicated community to share ideas, help us fix teething problems and work with us to develop Red Dead Online into something really fun and innovative".
